A Fun Day at “Chase The Ace”

Chase the Ace was a huge success!  Despite the rain and the cold we had 27 players ranging in age from 7 – 70 something,  all competing for the grand prize of eight, RPM Discs. Among those 27 players were five junior girls, all happy to brave the wet and the cold.

All competitors received an RPM Kea mid-range disc and completed 18, one-shot holes.  Mulligans were a popular choice with most players giving them a second chance at selected holes.  There were some fun challenges along the way including one hole which could only be recorded as an ace if the disc rebounded from the nearby tree, a blindfold hole and two suspended baskets rocking gently in the wind.  Surprisingly it was two of these more challenging holes where aces were scored.

There was a tie after 18 holes between Jeff Brunsting and Yasmin Murray, both from Melbourne Disc Golf Club.

It was a tense shoot-out to decide the winner.  And the winner was……..,Yasmin Murray!!!!!

After a yummy lunch of Tacos, junior players competed for prizes in ‘ring of fire’.  Winners were Lily Sweetten and Gemma.  In the open round of ‘ring of fire’ Josh  Smith was our winner after just one throw!  The shortest game of ‘Ring of Fire’ ever!

A fun round of ‘best shot doubles’ was played on the Ruffey Lake Park 18 hole course after lunch.  Winners were Tarron Anderson and Oscar Fehlberg.  Congratulations!
